can albuterol sulfate inhalation solution be inter changed with xopenex levalbuterol inhalation liquid solution
Asked by Thi Hafeman 6 months ago.
Yes, many people cant handle the side effects from the albuterol. jittery, shaky, increased heart rate to name a few. Also, albuterol only last around 4 hours. Xopenex (levalbuterol) does not cause these irritating side effects (for the most part) and last around 6 hours. They are both bronchodilators. Xopenex tends to be a little more expensive, but if you are in need of alubterol treatments every four hours, switching to xopenex would estimate to cost the same, since it is only taken every six hours. some physicians still recommend the xopenex be taken every 4 hours if a patient is in distress. Please only take your medication as directed. In my opinion Xopenex is the drug of choice for people with any lung disease or disorder! hope i helped! Answered by Jillian Wessinger 6 months ago.
Albuterol Sulfate is a Bronchodiolator as is Xopenex, However Albuterol can have some side effects such as shakey hands, nausea, and rapid heart rate. But as with Xopenex it has the same chemical make up as Albuterol but it is missing an isomer which is the tiny little piece of the chemical make up that cause these side effects. Albuterol tends to last between 4-6 hrs. as Xopenex will last around 8 hrs. Yes you can take both, but Xopenex will last longer. I wouldn't myself I would stick to the Xopenex, but if all you have is Albuterol, then use it. Answered by Peggie Clossin 6 months ago.
alubeterol is racemic albuterol which effects certain receptors in the airway and dialates the airway, and in the mix will increase your heart rate, and make you nervous (most people have this side effect) albuterol is a shorter acting drug giving 2-4 hours levalbuterol is albuterol, purified w/o the chemicals which make the receptors that effect the heart, and nervous sytem act up. the xopenex is a longer acting drug giving 6-8 hours between treatments I recomend xopenex for all pediatric patients, cardiac patients, ones who do not respond to albuterol, ones w/ negitive side effects to albuterol, and elderly patients. The big problem w/ the insurance companies and hosptials supplying this drug is the cost, albuterol cost about 1/4 the price of xopenex. (you get what you pay for byt he way!)

As in nebulizer treatment, Remember to use one less treatment of xopenx than albuterol I couldn't take xopenex, the normal dosing caused me to have overdose problems If you have the right druggest and the right Dr Albuterol neb treatment in the cheapest, I get 120 ea 3.0 ml doses for $15 With my ins. I have to pay the first $50 for xopenx per month Answered by Berry Minari 6 months ago.
As with almost all drugs, there are side effects, take them with a grain of caution and don't over-use. If you need to continually use this inhaler then see your doctor for a change, you could need something in another line. I use several types of inhalers and I don't like them but, there the only show in town. Answered by Heide Omarah 6 months ago.
The active ingredients in the two are very different, but give the same effect. Everyone is different and will respond to each one differently. Talk to your doctor and see which one works best for you. Answered by Ulrike Drock 6 months ago.

What is albuterol sulfate syrup good for?
Asked by Nancie Pember 6 months ago.
Rollo, Albuterol is a medication that normally does not come in syrup type solution. I have a nebulizer machine and the liquid goes out of the mask that fits ur nose and throat. It is a medication that opens ur bronchial tubes and helps get rid of mucus that accumulates in the lungs. I hope this helps but if not go to webmd and do a search on Albuterol and it will explain better. Good Luck Answered by Kenna Sicilia 6 months ago.

My 2 year old ingested albuterol sulfate inhalation solution?
My son possibly drank his sisters albuterol sulfate solution 0.083 percent what are some signs that I need to watch for and what can I do
Asked by Merry Kannan 6 months ago.
No need for panic! The albuterol sulfate inhalation solution comes in prepackaged squeeze containers and doesn't hold more then a few cc's of solution. On top of that it is also diluted with a saline solution so when you squeeze it into the SVN (small volume nebulizer), the worst that will happen is that your son will get a mild case of diarrhea. The solution is meant to be inhaled yes, BUT, once the solution has been inhaled it passes through small alveoli into the bloodstream which will just give the same effect as if you drank the solution. Nothing happens to your daughter, nothing is going to happen to your son. The medication is used to treat constricted airways and help with bronchial problems, asthma, etc. If your son has none of these problems the medication will have no affect on him. The only way this would be cause for concern is if he ingested a LARGE amount or he did this on a regular basis. If you're still worried you can call the poison control center at 1-800-222-1222 and talk to a professional just to be on the safe side. --- Mother of 3 & health-care professional --- Still, keep a close eye on him in case he has a reaction since at that young of an age you are still learning about allergies to certain medications Answered by Darlena Bedient 6 months ago.

Is Albuterol Safe Answered by Jude Habermehl 6 months ago.
Generic Ventolin inhaler is a bronchodilator that relaxes muscles in the airways and increases air flow to the lungs. Albuterol inhalation is used to treat or prevent bronchospasm in people with reversible obstructive airway disease. Albuterol is also used to prevent exercise-induced bronchospasm Use albuterol inhalation exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not use in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label. Use only the prescribed dose of this medicine and follow all patient instructions for safe use. Talk with your doctor about your individual risks and benefits of using albuterol. When using the albuterol inhaler device for the first time, prime it by spraying 4 test sprays into the air, away from your face. Shake well before priming. Also prime the inhaler if you have not used it for 2 weeks or longer, or if you have dropped the inhaler. Answered by Francis Bashford 6 months ago.

My 1 1/2 yrs old boy recently was prescribed for Albuterol Sulf oral syrup. I did not read good stuff about Albuterol so far. I don't want him to pick up insomnia and to become hyper due to this drug. Have your child that young ever used Albuterol? If yes, how was your experience? Please share, I and my wife will be thankful. BTW, my son got this drug for his recent coughs which started couple of weeks ago and did not stop yet.Doc does not know if it could be asthma. He is suspicious of it. Have you or your child used Albuterol for reasons other than asthma? If yes, for what? Answered by Katharina Lowrey 6 months ago.
I've used albuterol since I was a baby for asthma. If my mom didn't have albuterol to treat my attacks, I would have died before my first birthday. If your doctor prescribed albuterol, your baby needs it. If your baby has an asthma attack and it isn't treated, he could die. Albuterol does result in symptoms like muscle tremors and insomnia in some people, but these side effects don't last very long and wear off as the medicine does over a matter of hours. Being unable to sleep for a night is much better than being dead! If your baby is having difficulty breathing and you give him this medicine you should follow up with the doctor (or ER, if it's late) because the symptoms could return as the medicine wears off. Ask your doctor how to tell if an attack is severe enough to require emergency help. Get a referral to a pulmonologist with experience in treating children and infants with asthma. There are controller medications that children and adults can use to prevent asthma symptoms from happening in the first place. I'm sure some of these are applicable to babies. A pulmonologist would know how to diagnose asthma in a baby and the best way to prevent asthma attacks. Answered by Mervin Delmar 6 months ago.
Ask for albuterol in vials and purchase the machine with one dose your son will stop coughing! It opens the airways and for the first minute you will hear him constantly coughing it will go away that just means it's working! My baby is now 13 months and has been using it since he was 2 months. It's been hard because he hates having the mask on but even if he cries during the whole section we still do it its for his own good. My son is prone to cough. And has to use it as soon as he had signs of a cold! So far my son doesn't have any side effects and sleeps all night long. Answered by Johnetta Kretzinger 6 months ago.
Albuterol is really a great drug. In fact, it can be life-saving in a child with asthma and also with other conditions such as pneumonia, bronchiolitis, RSV, influenza, etc. It can and often does cause side effects of fast heart rate, shakiness, insomnia, and in a child, being hyper. These side effects are not permanent and actually go away a short time later (with my kids, usually within an hour of taking the med, although it can be longer). My older son used the syrup as a baby, but since then he has always used inhaled forms of the drug. My other kids have never taken albuterol syrup and have always used either inhalers or nebulizer treatments. But either way, it is a very effective medicine. I have 4 kids with various lung issues ranging from chronic lung disease of prematurity to asthma to interstitial lung disease. I have one son who is totally healthy, but he too has had to use albuterol in the past with bronchiolitis as an infant and then with influenza last year at age 6. As for my other kids, my oldest son probably would be much sicker without albuterol, and my younger 2 kids probably would not be alive without it. In April of this year, I got up to go to work, and I was getting dressed at around 4 AM. My husband and children were all in their beds. I kept hearing a funny high pitched mouse-like noise, and I couldn't figure out what it was. I almost went to work without investigating the source, but something told me to check on the kids before I left. My baby (then 14 months old) was blue, barely breathing (the mouse noise was the baby's breaths), and lifeless! He has asthma. I hooked him to my daughter's oxygen, put him on an albuterol nebulizer treatment, and within a few minutes, he was awake and breathing a little easier. Of course he was hospitalized after that and it took a few days to get totally better with proper treatment, but thank God for Albuterol! I am not telling you this story to scare you, but rather to emphasize that if your son has asthma and really needs that albuterol, it would be wise to give it before something like this happens. A little insomnia for a few hours tonight, you can deal with that. A blue baby, not such a good thing...A persistent cough can be your only warning. Good luck. I hope your baby feels better soon! Answered by Tierra Wanca 6 months ago.
Technically no, because Motrin is approved for kids 6 months and up. The truth is that she probably would be fine (there's nothing magic about 6 months of age that makes it OK, it just hasn't been studied well.) Tylenol would be fine. We do *sometimes* recommend Motrin for babies under 6 months of age, but only as a last resort. I would recommend you discuss it with the baby's doctor first. But Tylenol and something cool to chew on usually works also. Answered by Jessie Fearnow 6 months ago.

No, The Albuterol can not harm you, unless your abusing it and putting it to your mouth...But it wont do anything unless its an inhaler really. Nebulizers wont do anything It is basically evaporating into the air, and just helps open up the bronchioles in the lungs. It also can reduce the phlem in the lungs.

You can but why would you? You should really only take one of those at a time. Taking too much of the same sorts of asthma meds can make you jittery. I've never taken Advair but Albuterol is what I use when I have an attack. What you should try is a steroid inhaler once a day to ward off attacks and then have your emergency inhaler like albuterol in case. Ask your DOCTOR all about it.

One of the effects of Albuterol is an increased heart rate. It probably happened the other times you took it as well, but you just didn't notice (most people don't). It could also be that this time the effect was more pronounced because you got a more concentrated dose of the medicine, or you had other things in your system that also speed up your heart rate, such as caffiene.
